GOP Politician's 'Jesus Guns Babies' Slogan Has Twitter Firing Off Jokes
If simplicity is the key to good communication, a woman running to be the governor of Georgia has made it extremely easy for voters to know her priorities.
That’s because Kandiss Taylor is running in the GOP gubernatorial primary with a campaign slogan of “Jesus Guns Babies.”
Taylor’s website says she’s an educator with two decades of experience, but for some reason she chose not to put commas after “Jesus” or “Guns.”
Although Taylor probably intended the slogan to be red meat for conservative Georgia voters, it started trending on social media after it turned out to be appetizing to snarky Twitter users too.

Only in the mind of a Christian nationalist is "Jesus, Guns, Babies" ideologically consistent. https://t.co/0sr1yYdZU3

Georgia gubernatorial candidate: “Jesus, guns, babies.”
Georgia ranks 38th in the nation in child and family well-being and firearms are the first-leading cause of death among children and teens in the state. I’m guessing she won’t make this better… #gapolpic.twitter.com/H0raJ7a9BE

I did not see this coming from Republican Jesus who apparently spreads the gospel by the bullet as he guns down babies
